Sky Sports to show five hours of rugby league on Good Friday

Sky Sports will broadcast five hours of classic derby matches on Good Friday.

No games will take place over the Easter weekend with the rugby league season suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Super League’s broadcast partners Sky Sports will show 10 re-runs of matches including Wigan v St Helens, Hull FC v Hull KR and Castleford v Wakefield.

And they will also broadcast the full game from the 2003 Good Friday derby between Wigan and St Helens at 1pm.

Four Hull derbies, one West Yorkshire derby between Castleford and Wakefield and six Wigan-St Helens matches in 20-minute highlight packages will be shown over the course of the day.
